Lemkin Reunion Remembers Srebrenica

The Center for Conflict, Negotiation and Recovery (CCNR) at the School of Public Policy at CEU co-hosted the Lemkin Reunion/Milders Lecture Series panel entitled Remembering Srebrenica with the Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands on October 2.

During the panel discussion on the Srebrenica Genocide, Muhamed Durakovic warned that countries can disintegrate very easily. “It happens so quickly,” he said. Durakovic, who survived the Srebrenica Genocide, the killing of more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica in July 1995, urged audience members to “guard” the peace and to “nurture inclusive societies.” Durakovic said that the war in Bosnia was not an ethnic or religious war as has been suggested by some, but rather a conflict between two concepts: an inclusive society where all nationalities and religious groups live together, and an exclusive society where only one ethnic or religious group lives in a particular territory.
